CytexOne Announces A Flexible And Affordable On-Premise Subscription-based BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 Solution Built For SMBs

NEW YORK, April 21. CytexOne announced today the availability of a new Stratus server appliance that gives Small to Medium-Sized Businesses (SMB) a flexible, affordable and cutting-edge, turn-key solution for adding BlackBerry?? Enterprise Server, BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express and enhanced services to their mobile workforce.

"Small and mid-sized organizations need to have the most up-to-date capability and the greatest flexibility for a changing marketplace," said Dan Levine, CytexOne CEO and co-founder. "By providing an appliance that is already configured and can be remotely managed and supported, SMB's can quickly roll out high-reliability BlackBerry Enterprise Server. It takes all the trial and error out of adding this essential mobile service, whether you are deploying 20 or 2000 smartphones."

The CytexOne Stratus Appliance is based on a monthly rental model so it delivers the lowest entry cost of any BlackBerry Enterprise Server solution. The Stratus is fully scalable to meet changing demands, highly cost-effective, easy to operate, and keeps corporate e-mail, contacts and calendars all securely in-house. It comes complete with all the hardware and software necessary, as well as the licensing. Since the Stratus is rented and not purchased, software and hardware is regularly upgraded, without additional costs.

"The Stratus Appliance is based on our proprietary platform, which can offer highly scalable BlackBerry services without purchasing and configuring hardware, so buy-in as well as ongoing costs are a fraction of traditional systems," notes Dan. The Stratus not only dramatically reduces hardware needs and lowers energy costs, but it also reduces downtime expenses due to CytexOne's proactive monitoring.

There are numerous technological advantages to the CytexOne Stratus appliance. BlackBerry Enterprise Server v5.0, the latest and most comprehensive update, is already pre-installed. V5.0 offers enhanced functionality, including the ability to access specific desktop data files from a BlackBerry handset, even if that specific desktop computer if powered off. Third-party BlackBerry applications can be accessed company-wide, a feature currently unavailable on any other BlackBerry Enterprise Server solution.
